“A whole new world, every turn a surprise with new horizons to persue” says a song from the movie Aladdin. And in many ways North Africa is a wonderous place with a hundred thousand things to see. The country is beautiful and the people are warm and friendly. There are many cultural differences but we have been well prepared and each crew member is careful to dress and act appropriately so that we can make friends and build bridges between cultures here. I really hope to be a light that shines brightly, for people here to see that we don’t live like the western people that they see on TV in movies and the media. We are here to promote understanding between cultures and to make good friends. Please be thinking of me in this time.
